A monopoly is where you can set prices almost everywhere you want, and there is no other competition. This is referred to as predatory pricing, where companies charge a price lower than production costs. These companies believe their competitors can’t afford the loses. Cable companies don’t worry about competition due to the protection they enjoy from the government. The cable companies get away with this by claiming they do not have competition, cities award them the contract by providing coverage, even though they may not have the lowest price.
Another reason people like to defend Wal-Mart is because they have better prices than most everyone else which is easier on peoples wallets. Wal-Mart has become such a household name that most people will shop there without checking out other business when they realistically could be spending a little extra pocket change and helping their economy and help control this giant corporation. The savings people get are on account of cheap foreign goods that aren’t as good as American goods and people don’t realize it because they just remember the good deals. In my opinion there aren’t any other reasons to defend
Social Responsibility Company Q seems to currently have an economic attitude toward social responsibility. An economic model is based on the traditional concept of business. If the business is providing a quality good or service, showing a profit and providing jobs then it is successful. Company Q is more concerned with profits and lost revenues then maximizing a positive impact. They have shown this by closing a few stores in a higher-crime-rate area because they were losing money, by only offering a very limited amount of health-conscience and organic products because they are high margin items and by declining to donate to the local food bank because of worries over lost revenues.
When you do this you put your funds and calculations in the hands of someone who job is to make as much money as they can from a project. You would not know of what is applies to a bill is correctly calculated for that service. I just don’t think it is good practice when you can easily go out and get cost estimates from different companies and then have a vendor bid for a service based off your price estimate. On the other hand is you do have vendors computing support, if you have a good one that you give a lot of business to, there is always the opportunity for discounts based on past and future service, and you can probably make out well when you have someone who is sound and trustworthy looking out for both you and the vendors benefits.
One of the reasons companies outsource workers, and thus help imperialize foreign countries, is for cheap labor. Western corporations can have multiple sources for a given item, in order to allow continued production once one region realizes it is being treated unfairly and strikes. Oddly, it is argued that these companies could survive without any foreign connection—capitalism without imperialism. But, this would lower profits and prevent “advanced capitalism.” The decision to claim that cultures with what is considered modern technology is defined by military power rather than which culture is actually superior. It is this force that essentially created this gap.
Economic Issues Simulation Paper Heather Pennington University of Phoenix Mark Williams HCS/440 Making financial and economic decisions for a business is never an easy task.

Consumers could decide the purchase separate appliances instead of choosing the all-in-one. Our product is convenient, efficient, and cost effective. However, three separate machines could, in theory, do what our machine does. Customers could already own the three separate machines and decide not to spend money on a new gadget unless they need to replace something. There will be a higher marketing cost associated with this product in order to educate the consumers on the benefits of owning the product Because the customers could already own a toaster, microwave and convection oven, they won’t immediately understand the benefits of an all-in-one product.
I would have some difficulty ordering the parts possibly which could delay the repair but it would eventually get fixed and possibly much cheaper than calling a repair man. Conclusion: Using the creative process enabled me to isolate the problem and develop two possible solutions. After discussing the solutions with my wife we agreed that calling a repair man was the best decision because time is more important than the possibility of saving a few dollars. By using the creative process I have opened my mind to numerous ideas and developed two viable solutions. If I did not used the creative process, I may have overlooked the obvious problem and just replaced the refridgerator which would cost me lots of money.
However, it is not just the looks but the materials. The combination of copper and zinc is worth more than what the penny stands for and while making the design simpler would lower the cost, the price of the elements to create them is too high. So our small Abraham Lincoln's look great, they hold no real value because of the elements used to produce them and should slowly be phased
